Summary
"Join Nepalese climber Nimsdai Purja as he recounts his journey to scale all 8,000 meter "Death Zone" mountains in seven months. In this action-packed memoir, young readers will not only learn how Nimsdai physically accomplished this incredible feat, but also how his attitude, leadership skills, and willingness to learn from mistakes took him to the top. From his childhood growing up in Nepal, to a career as an elite soldier in the British army, Nimsdai shows how his early life shaped him and enabled him to go beyond what people though was possible"--
